Making Valentines for Whitney

Whitney Houston was a star, there is no denying that. Born into a soul family that included cousin Dionne Warwick, spiritual elder sister Chaka Khan, and godmother Aretha Franklin, Whitney started her larger than life singing career when she was only 21 years young. She has touched countless lives with the music she created and spread positivity throughout the world through her lyrics. 

To thank Whitney for her contribution to our lives, I am asking that you make her a Valentine. Tell her how she touched your life. Thank her for sharing her talents. And wish her well in the afterlife.

Please share your handmade and/or digital Valentines with us by  emailing a jpeg to We will be posting submissions on February 14th in her honor.

Here is my Valentine to Whitney:
I remember listening to The Greatest Love of All over and over on a mix cassette tape in the summer of 2001. I sang along at the top of my lungs in my car almost every day. It made me feel good during a time that for me wasn't so great. 

Thank you, Whitney. 
XO, Leigh
